Rockwell Collins to provide cabin core system for COMAC C919

  • 29-Sep-2010 11:32 EDT

The Commercial Aircraft Corp. of China (COMAC) selected Rockwell Collins to provide the cabin core system (CCS) for its C919 aircraft. The CCS will be standard equipment on all C919 aircraft. The CCS being developed specifically for the C919 will leverage innovations from Rockwell Collins Venue Cabin Management. Rockwell Collins will team with Shanghai Aero Measurement-Controlling Research Institute (SAMRI) and Cobham PLC. SAMRI will support Rockwell Collins in the design, development, and integration of the CCS, and Cobham will provide the public address system. Rockwell Collins' CCS allows flight attendants to control all subsystems on the aircraft including in-flight entertainment, passenger connectivity, lavatory, heating/cooling, and lighting.
